Search on for 11 still missing in Natonin

RAPE OF FOREST -- A vast tract of the mossy forest section of Mount Pulag in Tinoc, Ifugao and some parts of Benguet are under a serious threat due to massive expansion of commercial vegetable farms despite efforts of the government to protect the main water source of major rivers in Northern Luzon. The images of the forest devastation were captured by journalists aboard a Huey chopper on its way back to Baguio from a mercy mission in Natonin, Mountain Province. -- Harley Palangchao

NATONIN, Mountain Province – The spirit of bayanihan lives on.

Do not believe everything you read or watch about Baguio’s supposed “closure” to tourists to pave way for its supposed rehabilitation just like Boracay.
